Animal Enquiries

If an animal on the website has ‘reserved’ on their photo, you can still apply for that animal. The ‘Reserved’ sign is added to an animal as soon as an individual enquires about them. This means that animal is still AVAILABLE, since the person enquiring may not be suitable, and you can therefore still contact us to apply to adopt the animal.
